    In conference play for that matter, the last 4 games ISU has scored over 85 points, in this day in age in college basketball with many many low scoring games that is truly remarkable!!!!

    Yea, all the talk is about how teams can't score this year, Fred must have not gotten the memo.

    Tech also slowed the game down a lot today. It about put me to sleep when they where on offense. 9 seconds to get it across, 9 standing at the circle bounce bounce bounce, then put a shot up with under 10 on the shot clock. Yet ISU still found time to put up 86 today.

    Fred just runs an incredible offensive system, and the key is that he is able to tailor it to the strengths of the players he has.

    I'm convinced that the non conference struggles and sudden emergence in Big 12 play is by design almost. I think Fred uses the early season to figure out what his guys excel at and then put it into effect.

    It sure seems like we've been getting a lot more plays off of fast breaks lately, and being more aggressive about driving to the hoop.

    Well boxing out and rebounding does that for your offense.

    It's not by design, it's by necessity. I guarantee you he doesn't design his team to "struggle" early on. The team has to figure itself out because we have had 3+ new starters the past 2 years. Hopefully we won't need so much time to figure things out so much in the future because we have guys that are in the program for more than 1 or 2 years.

    This is what I'm expecting in the future. We've had experience the last 2 years, but neither team had much experience playing together. If Fred can take these teams to the tournament, I'm excited to see what he can do with a roster full of guys who he has coached and have played together for a few years. I'm looking at 2015-2016 when Thomas, Morris, and Niang are all upper classmen. Those teams shouldn't take as long to get used to playing together, and hopefully that will result in some bigger non-conference wins.

    When have we "struggled" on offense early on? Was our play really much different then as oppose to now?

    Our improvement and figuring things out comes on defense and in rebounding (assuming we do figure it out).

    Obviously he's not deciding to have the team struggle. I'm saying that he sees the non-conference as the time to experiment with plays and lineups, and accepts the struggles as part of that process.

    It's because the Big 12 defenses are not good. Amazing we only scored 51 the 1st time.
